Four sentenced in Va. for roles in coal check scheme

PRINCETON — Four men have been sentenced for their roles in a $10 million coal industry check-cashing scheme in Virginia and West Virginia that involved kickbacks and illegal currency transactions to evade taxes.

The four were sentenced Thursday in federal court in Abingdon.

J.D. “Dot” McReynolds of Tazewell, Va., was sentenced to six months of home confinement and forfeited $00,000 to the government. Charles Edward McReynolds II of Vallscreek, W.Va., was sentenced to three months in prison. Timothy Gregory Allen of Hurley, Va., and Kermit Clayton Wiley of Princeton, W.Va., were sentenced to six months. Wiley also forfeited $50,000.

Authorities say the four are among 23 who have pleaded guilty to felony charges in the scheme. Two others were convicted after a two-week jury trial. Defendants have forfeited more than $3 million.
